I realized that haven't posted any pictures of Layla in a while...SHAME ON ME! I pulled out the camera the other day and couldn't resist taking pictures of her playing on/in? mommy and daddy's "BIG bed". I think she could play on that bed for hours...making sheet tents and "nugglin". She's just now getting to that stage where she notices a camera out and hides from it...so she was a difficult subject. I think I took three pictures before she said, "no mommy". So I listened and put the camera away.
On an unrelated note (and for anyone who may care), I've decided not to run the half marathon in May. Spending $60 for 13.1 miles in this economic climate seems a little silly--especially after reading about and seeing children in my own community who have nothing to eat. I'm still trying to decide how to spend my $60...any suggestions?
SO, I think dad and I will probably head out the same weekend I was going to do the race and just do our own half marathon. I need to run a race so that I'll know how to build my training for the Marine Corps Marathon in October and Boston in April...YAY! Do you guys know how excited I am about the MCM...running such a huge and inspirational marathon with dad. PRICELESS! I think I'm equally as excited about doing Friday night and early morning long runs with dad in the summer--seeing fireflies across dark fields, listening to tree frogs, oh yeah...and dodging cars...that was so much fun last year and those are times that I will treasure forever, I'm sure.
